Cooparation capacity

Development of mutually beneficial cooperation of the Russian and foreign organizations working in the field of researches and development has to be based on a constant information exchange concerning development of hi-tech devices, the equipment, technologies, materials, interchange of new knowledge in the field of improving energy efficiency, elaboration of proposals packages. Providing the present information is urged to render assistance in assessment of scientific and technical cooperation capacity, in search and development of joint subjects for researches and development.

1 «COST» (European Co-operation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research)

The COST program exists since 1971 and is intergovernmental structure on coordinating national researches at the European level.

Activity within this program is directed on scientific and technical integration of the European countries, and also on mutually beneficial cooperation with the countries which aren't a part of "COST" and non-governmental organizations without any geographical restrictions. Today in the area of "COST" one of the most extensive structures for research cooperation is created. The Russian Federation isn't the member of "COST", but takes part in implementation of scientific drafts of the program. Main thematic directions of research projects:

The COST program exists since 1971 and is intergovernmental structure on coordination of national researches at the European level.

- agriculture and biotechnologies;

- chemistry;

- environment;

- food;

- forestry and woodworking industry;

- materials science;

- medicine and health care;

- meteorology;

- physics;

- sociology and humanities;

- information and communication technologies;

- municipal economy.

Energy and space belong to spheres of the most active cooperation with the Russian Federation.

"COST" funds Pan-European networks of scientists and researchers in many areas of science and technologies by means of funding actions ("COST Actions") which are urged to promote the international cooperation between the researches receiving public financing. "COST" doesn't finance researches, but gives support to development of the network communications connected with these researches.

The scientific and technological networks of the COST program is constructed by the "bottom-up" principle, work 4 years and demand participation of at least five State Parties of "COST".

Participants of the project carry out planning of COST activities together, however, financing is conducted by each country separately. The commission of the EU provides services of the secretariat and finances carrying out joint actions. Financing of "COST" makes about 1,5 billion euros a year. These means are used for organization of conferences and seminars, for payment of transportation costs at the organization of meetings and publications. Depending on scale and a subject of the project, a direction can be funded at average about 70 thousand euros.

Network activity of "COST" is organized via master classes, conferences, schools, short-term scientific missions and activities for distribution of information. Actions of "COST" are available to researchers from universities, the public and private research institutions, to the non-governmental, industrial organizations.

The application for participation in "COST" can be submitted within open competition. Dates of submission of proposals are published in the official magazine of the European Union and on the web-site  of "COST". The decision on providing financing is made within three months from an expiration date of proposals submission. Researchers can join already operating actions of "COST" also.

Actions of the COST program are open for the international cooperation and allow participation on a mutually advantageous basis for researchers from the countries which aren't members of "COST", including for the Russian researchers.

The application for participation in "COST" can be submitted within open competition. Dates of submission of demands are published in the official magazine of the European Union and on the site "COST". The decision on providing financing is made within three months from an expiration date of submission of demands. The demands which passed selection are a part of actions of "COST", and realization of works on them can be begun within three months from the moment of carrying out selection.

Researchers can join already operating actions of "COST" also.

Actions of the COST program are open for the international cooperation and allow participation on a mutually advantageous basis for researchers from the countries which aren't members of "COST" including for the Russian researchers.

2 UNIDO

On 17 November 1966, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) was established as a special organ of the United Nations General Assembly to assist, promote and accelerate the industrialization of developing countries, with a particular emphasis on manufacturing. In 1985, the organization was converted into a specialized agency of the United Nations, working with the United Nations through the coordinating machinery of the United Nations Economic and Social Council at the intergovernmental level, and through the United Nations Chief Executives Board for coordination at the inter-secretariat level.

UNIDO activities are directed to improvement of life quality by cumulative global resources and experience in three following thematic areas:

- fight against poverty on the basis of a production activity;

- creation of trade potential and ensuring technical capabilities of developing countries in production of the competitive export production meeting the international standards;

-energy and environment, including fight against climate change.

UNIDO provides services, directed to improving energy efficiency in the industries, including use of renewables. UNIDO also renders assistance to developing countries in implementation of multilateral nature protection agreements. The organization provides the following packages of complex services:

- industrial department and statistics;

- assistance to investment and transfer of technologies;

- increase of competitiveness in the industry and trade;

- private sector development;

- agricultural industry;

- sustainable energy and climate change;

- rational environmental management.

At the moment under the auspices of UNIDO in the Russian Federation several projects are under  implementation.

3 European Bank of Reconstruction and Development

The European Bank of Reconstruction and Development was created in 1991 as the instrument of assistance to strengthening of market economy in 34 countries. EBRD is the largest investor in the region and attracts considerable volumes of direct foreign investments.

The sectors financed by the European Reconstruction and Development Bank are the following ones:

- energy efficiency;

- transport;

- natural resources;

- energy;

- small and medium-sized enterprises;

- agro-industrial complex;

- financial institutions;

- manufacturing industry;

- municipal and ecological infrastructure;

- real estate and tourism;

- communication, information technologies and mass media.

As a rule, the EBRD finances up to 35% of a total cost of the project. The EBRD requires to finance at least  1/3 of project costs from sponsors.

The project cycle of the EBRD consists of the following stages:

- consideration of the project concept.

The EBRD operational committee approves the concept of the project and its general scheme, including the offered scheme of financing and the corresponding obligations. At this stage of the EBRD and the client sign the mandatory letter with a statement of the project plan, expenses on development of the project and obligations of the parties.

- final consideration.

After agreeing on all key parameters of the transaction (including signing of the list of the main conditions) and completion of all examinations the project undergoes procedure of final consideration in operational committee.

- consideration on the project on Board of directors.

The president of the EBRD and project group submit the project to board of directors of the EBRD  for the approval.
